Utah Census online research should begin with what is available online for free. If this proves fruitful then congratulations! If not, then I would suggest signing up for the online census images (links to the right) where you can access all the available online Utah federal census information directly from your computer at home.

There are various “state census” lists which can be consulted for periods of time between some of the federal census years. These were taken in 1852, 1856, 1872, and 1896. Only the 1856 has been published to my knowledge*. You can also obtain from your nearest FHL a microfilm of the Bishops Report for 1852 which lists ward by ward heads of households.

* The 1856 enumeration for statehood has been challenged as it appears many of the enumerated were not yet living in Utah. So though it accurately reflects those who were members of the LDS Church, it does not server as an accurate reflection of the residents of Utah in 1856.
